Brand Has Raised Nearly $50,000 For Breast Cancer Awareness
Harrisburg, PA (RestaurantNews.com) In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar will partner for the sixth consecutive year with the Feel Your Boobies® foundation for a month-long fundraiser where proceeds from sales of Blue Moon and Dark Horse Rosé for October are donated to this and other organizations to raise awareness.
The Feel Your Boobies® Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit breast cancer organization that promotes proactive breast health in young women through strategic education & outreach programs. Arooga’s is the foundation’s largest and longest standing donor partner, and these fundraisers have helped the Harrisburg based charity to expand from the founder’s home to new offices in the area, as well as open a second office in Maryland.
“In 2019, Feel Your Boobies expanded our programming to target at-risk African American young women through our Minority Outreach Program.” said Leigh Hurst, founder and President of the Feel Your Boobies foundation. “Arooga’s support of the Foundation’s work over the years has been a critical element to making program expansion possible, which means we can reach more young women with our life-saving mission.”
“We are so glad for the relationship we have with such an awesome charity.” said Gary Huether, Jr., Arooga’s President and Co-Founder. “We love that we are able to give back to an organization local to our home base, and that we’ve played such an instrumental part in expanding their footprint and mission objectives.”
This year’s fundraiser will run from October 1st through the 31st at all Arooga’s locations (Attleboro, MA, Shelton, CT, and Warwick, RI proceeds to benefit other local charities).
